We set out early for the game drive at Aquila Private Game Reserve on our last full day with the group. The first part of the drive was on their 7,000 hectare property, where we got to see water buffalo, elephants, springbok, zebras, rhinos, and hippos. Then we checked out the lions, cheetahs, warthogs, and crocodiles in the enclosed viewing area – watch for our close encounter with the male lion!!
